My name is Michal Toroj and I created So Close So Far Away to express my love of travel and photography. By putting these two passions together, I try to make my pictures of “far away” places feel “so close” to those who haven’t been to them. I love to focus on people, their everyday life and the unique atmosphere that surrounds them. I look for familiarity in the exotic and vice versa.
My motto is: no matter how close we travel it can take us far away, while in far away places we can sometimes feel like home. This is because the real travel happens inside of us.
So have a look at the galleries and don’t hesitate to use the contact form should you like to collaborate with me or if you have any questions about my works.
